If you live in Australia Veronica Mars is quite possibly the best show you will never get to see. We’ve just watched the premier episode of the second season and have no idea why this hasn’t been picked up here yet. I guess the 25 words or less “school girl detective solves crime in her spare time” description would send most people running but the last time a show with such rich characters, witty writing, complex (and daring) story lines and with a strong young female lead was screened it was largely ignored too. Which is a shame, ’cause Veronica Mars could end up being better than Buffy and I can pay a television show no higher compliment.
If you’re in Aus move heaven and earth to get a copy of season 1, there is no way you will be disappointed.

btw – both series of dead like me is on amazon too. that’s wherre i got it.
another show that is excellent but not shown here is wonderfalls!
series 1 is on dvd at amazon. it’s well worth it.
it’s yet another excellent show that the fta networks wont show
It’s all fun and games until one of you gets my foot up your ass.
Sussy, Dead Like Me was screened here on Foxtel’s FOX 8.
I’m still miffed that Dead Like Me hasn’t taken here. But there you go. If it’s not bloody Law & Order (Whateverversionithappenstobe), CSI, or Blue effing Heelers (*grr*), it’s not worth watching. Apparently.
I need to get my hands on one of them rating box thingamijiggers.
VERONICA MARS IS THE BEST SHOW EVER. iT’S FUN, INTERESTING, WITTY, DARING AND OVERALL HIGH ENTERTAINMENT. WE KNOW HAVE IT IN AUSTRALIA, BUT IT SAYS IN OUR VERSION OF TV WEEK THAT NEXT EPISODE IS THE LAST. BOO HOO I HATE CHANNEL TEN
Can’t believe that it has been cancelled: it’s a great success in US. What has possessed them to do such a stupid thing!
summer ratings. the only 2 shows to make it were supernatural (because 10 pushed it) and ghost whisper (because 7 didn’t have any other show rate that high). its a shame though. i don’t think 10 knows that everyones getting bored of the o.c, me and my friends are agree that marissa and ryan r boring! Veronica Mars is the best thing on Tv. I hope it wont turn out like Charmed – A show pushed around over a period of a year, then wrapped up at 11.30pm on an monday night.
Channel 10 suck!
CAME BACK FROM HOLIDAYS, SO WHAT HAPPEND TO VERONICA MARS, AT LEAST PUT IT ON FRIDAY AS YOU HAVE NOTHING ELSE THATS GOOD AT THAT TIME (FRIDAY NIGHT GAMES) IS SOOOOOOOO BOORING ID RATHER WATCH A BLANK TELEVISION OR EVEN SWITCH TO CHANNEL 9. SORRY BUT IS THE TRUTH.
just checked v mars on google and we only got first 11 , still 11 2 go plus this new season.
at leastyou city folk got ch 9 too. we in broken hill have 7,2,10 & sbs so whensports on ch 7 becomes 9 and any of us non sporty types dont get diddly
I agree, Veronica Mars is the best show on in Australia at the moment. I consider it the second best show ever made after Buffy.
Its the best show ever oh my god i cant believe 10 play it at 1030 plus the AFL is now on insted i hope its back on soon or ill freek is it on DVD hear yet or will i have 2 grt it of amazon or Ebay cuz its better then the oc and it will get tons of rateings if it was on at a good time like they could pit it on insted of feutureramer and the wege at 8pm on tuesday ot on sunday at 630pm insted of mearkat mannor and its me or the dog or insted of a move because its way more entertaning.
The only show I actually stay home to watch I am so angry i love veronica mars best dhow ever
V Mars is the best show that I have seen in years since Buffy and Angel signed out. I am distraught that it is not coming back!!!
OmG they jst left us hanging after the first ep…..BUT ITs Okay for me cOz i just bought the whole second seasOn and it arrived today in the mail!!
But im not just some crazy teenage girl that gets sucked into every teen shOw around. I never Liked to OC or buffy…but veronica mars is somthing eles…Im HOOKED!
I agree compleely… I have never been able to stomach OC and especially not Buffy (PUKE), but I was desparately and helplessly over-heels for Veronica Mars… Channell 10 has some hopeless shows playing currently, seriously, who watches Meercat Manor or Its me or the Dog???? WHO? And as for the Wedge and constant Simpson re-runs, oh come on seriously, I’m just a wee bit sick of it all…. well anyway, theres my 2 cents worth
